Safer Insecticidal Soap Concentrate (Pint)

Kills Insects on Contact

Safer Brand® Insect Killing Soap Concentrate kills a variety of insect pests including aphids, whiteflies and mealybugs.

This 16 fluid ounce container provides enough solution to protect your garden with up to 6 gallons of coverage.

Safer Insecticidal Soap Concentrate is a valuable tool in the fight against common garden pests. This eco-friendly insecticidal soap provides gardeners with an effective way to control aphids, mites, whiteflies, and other soft-bodied insects that harm plants.

Safer Insecticidal Soap is a reliable solution for gardeners facing pest problems, including the notorious Japanese beetles. When these beetles lay eggs, they can cause a lot of damage to plants, but Safer Insecticidal Soap provides a safe and effective solution. Safer insecticidal soap promotes biological control by sparing beneficial insects while targeting pests.

Unlike strong chemical pesticides, Safer Insecticidal Soap won't harm helpful insects like parasitic wasps and green lacewings, crucial for controlling pests in the garden. This soap offers a balanced approach to pest management by targeting soft-bodied insects like aphids, mites, and whiteflies while leaving beneficial insects unharmed. With Safer Insecticidal Soap, gardeners can tackle pest issues while promoting a healthy and thriving garden ecosystem.

Scale insects, which can devastate plants by sucking their sap and weakening their structure, are effectively controlled with this eco-friendly soap. Additionally, Safer Insecticidal Soap is gentle on beneficial insects like lacewing larvae, which prey on pest larvae such as beetle larvae. This soap ensures that natural predators can thrive while still addressing pest infestations.

For more stubborn pests like caterpillars, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a key ingredient in some formulations of Safer Insecticidal Soap, targeting the larvae before they can cause extensive damage. By disrupting pest larvae feeding on food sources, this soap helps maintain a healthy balance in the garden ecosystem, supported by natural predators like tachinid flies.

From the Internet: "For best results, use freshly mixed solution. Mix one part concentrate with 50 parts water, or 2.5 fl. oz per gallon unless otherwise noted. Use soft water whenever possible. NOTE: Do not use on new transplants, newly rooted cuttings or plants stressed by drought. Avoid application when temperature exceeds 90°F. Insect Killing Soap Concentrate may be used up to and including day of harvest, and is useful as a component of Integrated Pest Management "

Instructions are on the back of the bottle, you have to peel off first layer to release the instructions.
